Perfect venue to stay for our daughter's wedding in Thurmont

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter just got married at Thorpewood in Thurmont this past weekend. Last fall when the kids picked their date and venue, I knew I had to book a place soon that would house our large family coming from West and East coast. Sage Way Farm was beyond perfect for our needs! We hosted a pizza party the night before for the bridal party and out of towners with ease. The bride and her maids had hair and makeup done in largest family room on Saturday morning, and after the wedding a small after party was held. On Sunday morning we had the Omelette Man fix breakfast for those in the area. It was ideal for friends and family from far away to visit and hug before we all went back to "life". It was such a gracious and spacious setting, no one felt on top of each other, and our four younger grand daughters had a blast playing together in all the different rooms. I loved that there were multiple areas in which people could gather and visit. And so grateful to the huge laundry room adjacent to the kitchen which was my flower arranging room (had a sink and refrigerator as well) The owner - Renu, is very helpful and responsive to any and all problems which might occur. Everyone loved it and our time there. No one wanted to leave. I couldn't have found a better place for our immediate family to gather and chill out together! And please note the pictures online do not do justice as to how big and spacious it really is. Remember it is an older home, so there will be some quirks, but easily forgivable for the space and charm you have.

Twelve adults and four children gathered for a reunion at Sage Way Farm. There is plenty of space to have a quiet space when needed, large kitchen to prepare meals, great outdoor area to join in the family fun. Three refrigerators, lots of bathrooms made life easy for us all.

Rainy wedding weekend, but showers of joy while at Sage Way farm

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at Sage Way farm during our son's Frederick wedding. The front of the home is so deceiving at how expansive the house really is. We could have easily missed each other, because there was so much room. The generous parking allowed each of us to arrive from various places then easily drive into downtown and surrounding Frederick for the other wedding activities. The convenient location also provided many quick options for groceries, gas, shopping and restaurants. Unlike other properties we've rented this one is very well stocked (baby items, games, emergency items) and the welcome wine was very hospitable. Due to the weather we even found entertainment in watching the resident goose family with their new goslings swimming in the pond. Overall it was so nice to draw our family together in the peaceful haven of your home. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
